Speaker Series Review: CANADIGM and Souterrain Impressions

Many thanks to the Canadian Historical Documentation & Imaging Group (CANADIGM) for speaking to the Society on October 20. Zenon Andrusyszyn, the Executive Director/Project Leader for CANADIGM discussed the unique project they are working on in France, digitizing the carvings made in souterrain caves by soldiers during World War I. From a simple name impression, to detailed carvings of militia insignia, CANADIGM is utilizing the latest technologies to record and digitize these markings, ensuring their legacy is not lost.

CANADIGM has created an exhibition of their replicas of impressions, and it is on display in Mississauga until November 30.  The exhibition is at the Stonebrook Presentation Centre, 2007 Lakeshore Road West, Mississauga.
